Description

Offering illuminating insight into the investigative journalism behind Naomi Klein's bestselling book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, this riveting hour-long lecture and interview explains the ideas and research behind the book that exposed the popular myth of the free market economy’s peaceful global victory. From Chile in 1973 to today, this is the chilling tale of shock doctors, those powerful few making a killing around the world by cashing in on chaos and exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally implement their policies.

Contributor Notes

Editorial Reviews

?Naomi Klein's exposé of neo-liberal economics is certain to be sensational. She rips away the “free trade’ and globalization ideologies that disguise a conspiracy to privatize war and disaster and grab public property for the rich few."   “Chalmers Johnson, author, the Blowback Trilogy


?Naomi Klein is an investigative reporter like no other. She roams the continents with eyes wide open and her brain operating at full speed, finding connections we never thought of and patterns which eluded us.”  “Howard Zinn, author, A People’s History of the United States on The Shock Doctrine


?Naomi Klein is one of the most important new voices in American journalism today.”  “Seymour M. Hersh, Pulitzer Prize?winning investigative journalist


"If you don't live in an urban area likely to be visited by a luminary like Klein, this skillfully produced lecture is an excellent way to supplement the experience of an in-person lecture."  ?Feminist Review
